UH Termite Project - PEPS/CTAHR

Alate Project

Light trap

Light traps are used to monitor the presence of termite alates and track termite reproductive cycles. Formosan subterranean termites swarm annually from May and June in Hawaii, but small swarms may occur at any time. Swarms only occur on warm, humid, nearly windless nights, and last about half an hour.
